, connecticut. i want to bring in "usa today" washington bureau chief susan page and for "the chicago sun times," lynn swede. good morning. let me start with the fiscal cliff, pause because we only ha days left. harry reid declared boehner's plan doa. let me play what he said. >> every time we get down to getting something for the long-term financial security of this country, they take that football and it is a charlie brown episode, they jerk the ball away. >> so, lynn, what is the strategy with plan b? >> well, actually the white house just said this morning that obama would veto plan b, so it may be boehner needs to look for c, d, e and f going into further negotiations because the -- i think the reality is that there is movement on both sides. i think boehner looked -- wanted to look prudent to his members and put out -- float this other plan. and this is all the negotiations. i think they still just have to get more spending cuts, obama has his left flank exposed with his cost of living issues dealing with social security. so i still think they're heading very slowly towards a deal, 13 yea

violent crime rate is less where people are more able to get guns and even though connecticut has the very kind of law that senator feinstein wants somehow we are to believe that her -- by the way, i got to admire her in one way. not only did she not get her semi auto ban stick the last time it went off the books. now she wants to come back with one on steroids. i wish there were people on my side of the aisle that had that kind of tenacity so senator feinstein hats off to you. >> what do you say, alexus? to me, it's not unreasonable to know where the guns are. i don't know i don't want eric holder to be the guy with that list. >> first of all, we know that almost 40% of guns in this country are being sold by unlicensed dealers. right? we're not getting universal background checks. things that could help us reduce crime. we're not -- 7 a% of states are also able to ignore a lot of the mental illness requirements and things that the gun lobby and people like larry are making as a case that we need to be supporting more, understanding of what is happening with the mental illness community. i

it is something else. i think we have seen that kind of regionalization of laws. connecticut had an assault weapons ban that didn't prevent this tragedy from happening and didn't outlaw the kind of gun you would want to be outlawed for that kind of tragedy. i don't know that the federal government will be able to slice and dice. it will be very difficult and very close if they are able to get something done. i know there is going to be a big push on it. the president is going to speak on it. they will have to marshall all of their good will after this to try to figure out what can be done. >> all right. thanks. we'll see you later on in the show. >>> as the nation's most powerful gun lobby group doubles down for the call for armed guards at schools we are learning more about adam lanza. the washington post today has a quote from his former first grade teacher who says there was a quiet depth to him that i couldn't penetrate. let's bring in national political reporter and bob franken, a syndicated columnist. welcome to both of you. before we get started i want to play you more on the intervi

the tragic shooting in connecticut, of course. the new york stock exchange will hold a moment of silence to honor the victims in the next few moments, and we'll be looking at the president's call for meaningful action and the politics of gun control. >> let's get to a road map for this morning. it starts with apple. under pressure once again. even dipping below $500 a share at some point this morning. shares will remain range bound near term. iphone 5 sales and cannibalization among the region. >> other concessions from the gop, the speaker proposing tax hikes for millionaires. could this be the tipping point. moving the talks beyond deadlock. >> a big week for earnings. yes, earnings. fedex, research in motion among the companies reporting. so finally maybe we'll be talking about fundamentals in the stock market more than just the cliff. we've got to talk about apple reversing its move lower this morning, sold more than 2 million iphone 5s in china. the best debut for any iphone in the china market. apple shares are higher as we mentioned. moving away from market bear territory. apple h

prevented this from happening? anything you can think of? >> well, look. connecticut already had a so-called assault weapons ban and it didn't stop that monster from doing what he did. these kind of massively restrictive gun control laws certainly don't stop the bloodshed in obama's chicago, which we talked about last week, or in washington d.c. where so many citizens are not protected by armed guards the way that the privileged elites on capitol hill or eelites on so many in the liberal media who are crusading for the gun control laws enjoy. i think what you are getting at and many of us have pointed to is the hypocrisy and double standard among those who have a concealed weapon for me but not for thee agenda, and that includes people like dianne feinstein, who herself was a concealed carry holder when she was in san francisco and the likes of chuck schumer and jay rockefeller who owned an ar15 and michael moore and so many of these elites. now we have the demonization of people who suggest that maybe it should be local school districts and communities that take matters into their ow
